    Pasta dishes are awesome. Especially when the sauce, stock, or the pasta itself is homemade. Spaghetti, ravioli, lasagna, penne, fettuccine alfredo. Even simply boiling noodles until al dente in salt water and coating it with balsamic vinegar and parmesan is delicious.

    How do you like your pasta?

    I like it made by an Italian chef, eating it outside at a pitoresque place in Italy

    We eat pasta in my house all the time. I grew up on pasta for dinner every Sunday.

    By the way, you're going to have to lose the AV when my dubbs are up!

    What are you talking about? My AV is clearly Charlie Brownson.


    Anyways, Sunday pasta is the bomb. Having wine with it and taking a nap afterwards is the best.

    I never liked wine. My wife is making ravioli for dinner tonight. Then I'm going to Jujitsu class to do a bunch of rolls and breakfalls before drilling throws. I'm gonna puke.

    My brother hooked me up at this restaurant he used to work at in New Orleans with a cajun pasta that wasn't on the menu. Good stuff.

    My wife is 1/4 Italian, so when we go to her parents house for dinners we get some authentic stuff. I had never heard of gnocchi before we met now it's one of my favorites. I also didn't know that every past dish's sauce is different, growing up with a Filipino mom Ragu went on all noodles.

    Obviously, home made is the way to go. Unfortunately, not all of us are Sherdog 5 star chefs and don't have the time.

    I usually get simple stuff, like 4 cheese ravioli, or tortellini and some good meatballs from the grocery store.

    I am currently using Mom's Puttanesca sauce and Rao's Homemade Tomato Basil Sauce.

    I just boil the pasta, add a little red wine, some fennel seed and either meatballs, or Italian Sausage.

    Pretty simple meal and tastes great.

    Nothing wrong with keeping it simple.

    Made homemade pasta for the first time not long ago was awesome. Spaghetti and lamb meats balls defiantly worth the time to make it.
